gazryn chuluu is situated about 37km to northwest from the center of
Delgertsogt Soum, Dundgobi province. This area of granite surrounded by
flat plains covering 300 square km area elevated 1768m above sea level. In the
surrounding mountains and valley, you can see considerable number of ancient
graves, khirgisuurs, petroglyphs and monuments besides many gushing springs.
There are many sights to see such as a rocky ravine of poplar called Sudutyn
am, Jargalant cave, spring of eyesight, Takhilgyn khavtsal, (Takhilga
canyon), Ger Chuluu and Hunnu graves.
Ger Chuluu: It contains many cave drawings including a
petro glyph depicting a man tying 2 ibex with a rope. This cave painting
belongs to the latter period of Bronze Age and attracts greater attention from
researchers. On a nearby rock 2 deers were depicted at their real size. One of them
is 170cm long and 90cm tall.
Sudutyn Am: This mountain gap was named as Sudutyn Am,
because large amount of grass called sud grow in the area. About 300 years ago
2 monks lived as a hermit among poplar groves in this rocky canyon. They
erected their home in the area where a brook flows through. So, they could take
water inside their home without going out. These monks were entombed here with
their creations. Currently, an entrance of the canyon is closed with a
fortress. Later in the early 20th century, this canyon was used by Zava
Damdin, a well-known representative of Mongolian yellow sect Buddhism, to
create his works.
Jargalant Cave: This 18m-long cave is situated 1km far
from Sudutyn Am. While going through the cave, one is forced to cover first
half of the way on foot but another half by crawling. In ancient time there
were crystal-like glittering water drops along the cave wall. Unfortunately,
currently there are almost none of them.
eyesight: Springs of eyesight is
1km far from both Sudutyn Am and Jargalant Cave. The spring comes from a hole
which is 50cm deep in rock and its diameter is 7 cm. It is believed that one’s
eyesight will be got better if this spring is applied to his or her eyes by
using special dipper hung nearby.
Takhilgyn Khavtsal: Takhilgyn Khavtsal is the highest peak of the
Baga Gazryn Chuluu elevated 1768 meter above sea level. The mountain has a high
rocky ravine making a sight extremely grand. Occasionally, ibex and mountain
sheep appear there.
Hunnu Graves: It is possible to see 64 Hunnu
graves at once in Dund Shandyn Am of Baga Gazryn Chuluu. In 1989, joint group
Mongolian-Hungarian-Russian excavated the area. Distances between the graves
